Why Chelsea Have it Right Now

So, United kicked off the 2014/15 campaign with their first home defeat of the season out of the way. Not the end of the world really although probably not what they’d have expected given they hadn’t lost on the opening day at Old Trafford since 1972 and Swansea had never won there in the Premier [...]

Burnley v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Turf Moor Date: Monday, 18 August Kick-off: 20:00 GMT At long last our first game of the season is here and it’s an away fixture against Burnley to kick off our 2014/15 campaign. An easy one you might think? Well there’s no such thing as an easy game when it’s the first one of [...]

The 2014/15 Season: Jose Knows

Our Premier League campaign might not kick-off until Monday but in yesterday’s press conference, Jose Mourinho sounded more than ready for the new season. Our first XI might be a different matter, with the Chelsea boss confirming ‚ÄúProbably the first two or three matches will be more about the team that is ready than what [...]

Will ‘The More Carefully Selected One’ Match Mourinho?

Remember this time last year when United were making lame comparisons between their Chosen One and The Special One? Of course, that initial and as it turned out, naive crowing only added to the hilarity as the season progressed – although theirs didn’t really, did it? Whilst Jose Mourinho walked us through the season, always [...]

CHELSEA v Norwich: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 4 May Kick-off: 16.00 BST Well, Mourinho promised us nothing this season and after our midweek defeat to Atletico in the Champions League and City’s win against Everton yesterday, it seems that nothing is exactly what we’ll be getting. There’s still points to play for though and we need at [...]

CHELSEA v Atletico Madrid: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday, 30 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST Having clearly upset the media and pundits alike with our ‘shock’ win over Liverpool at the weekend, unlike the league leaders (who prefer to take it easy midweek) it’s back to Europe for us with our Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico [...]

Liverpool v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Anfield Date: Sunday, 27 April Kick-off: 14.05 GMT Whilst Liverpool could afford a draw today and still win the title (vomits in own mouth), after our cock-up against Sunderland, our best hopes of success (albeit as slim as the numbers left in our squad to see it out) now lie in Europe. Still, given [...]

CHELSEA v Sunderland: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 19 April Kick-off: 17.30 BST No messing about today, yet another must-win game as Sunderland come for a visit looking to upset us as much as they upset City this week. No excuses for us either with a late kick-off and the chance of a lie-in, so let’s do it.

Swansea v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Liberty Stadium Date: Sunday, 13 April Kick-off: 16.07 BST By the time we play this afternoon, we’ll know whether any remaining hopes we had for the title were in vain, with Liverpool and City playing the early game. Either way though, if we’re to have a strong finish to the season we’ll have to [...]

CHELSEA v PSG: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Tuesday, 8 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST After a convincing win against Stoke in the Premier League, tonight sees the return of the Champions League and a visit from PSG in the quarter final second leg. Going into this game 3-1 down from the first leg obviously isn’t the best starting point [...]
